As a rule of thumb, it is best to avoid beer/lager if you’re sensitive to gluten or suffer from any form of Coeliac disease. This is due to the fact that the majority of beers/larger are made from grains. Barley is the key ingredients used in the making of most beers and must be avoided as part of a clean and safe gluten-free lifestyle.
